Midtown Theater



A site was found on the fringe between the theater district and the Midtown business district. The building is inserted as a mediator between the frivolity of the theatrical and the corporate office spaces. The building itself becomes a performance; during the daytime it operates among the normative events in Midtown. At night it transforms into a theater.

Commercial and financial plug-ins are inserted on the ground plan, while corporate workspaces occupy the second floor. Above this a datum is established separating the proper from the improper.
